The 557-foot Eclipse reportedly comes with features including two helipads, a submarine, multiple hot tubs, a pool and a missile-detection system. Another story has Eclipse with "two swimming pools -- the larger of which converts into a dance floor when drained -- bullet-proof glass, 6ft home cinema screens in every guest cabin and a master cabin where the roof opens to allow Abramovich and his girlfriend Daria to sleep under the stars. An anti-paparazzi electronic "shield" will take care of their privacy while on board."
It is the largest private yacht in the world, beating the 532-foot yacht Dubai, owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, and is Abramovich's 5th yacht, although he sold one and gave another to his ex-wife. Online reports have estimated it costing anywhere from $400-$800M.
